If we fed all the news headlines into an AI, could it tell us when it was likely for us to get the next mass shooting?

(In the US, obviously.)

I hear more ads because of Podcasts than anywhere else. My TV is all downloaded, my browser is uBlocked, so I don't get ads anywhere... except when McDonalds intrudes on my Star Talk.

I am not sure this is funny to.. well, the masses. It's cracking this nerd up, but I don't know if Normal Q, Greyface would get it.

The guy I bought my whiskey from today has a comedy album. I came home and bought it, and I love it.

Just FYI, this is funny, but potentially only for Pittsburghers:

I've studied Silat for nearly 20 years. Got my red sash. I train others. I never really considered myself any sort of martial arts expert or anything, though.

I was just watching a video from 1985 with Cynthia Rothrock and Michelle Yeoh. It was low res, and a tiny corner of my screen, but I was surprised that I could tell the surprisingly young version of each of them by how they move more than looking at them.

I guess I picked up more than I realized.

Unrelated to my other woes, I kinda hate the fact that they introduced skin color to Emoji.

I am all for inclusion, but I'm a white guy. If I use a white thumbs up, I feel like I am bragging, like I really need you to know that I'm white or that I'm not a minority.

Okay, switched to NVidia drivers, and as long as I am in Plasma (but not Wayland) I can get one big 4k monitor and the 2k monitor to show, but not the other Thunderbolt monitor and, oddly, not the laptop screen itself.

Progress?

So... why won't OpenSUSE find my other monitors? They're connected, they popped up at least once...

Since I was on a roll with Tech today, I figured I'd take apart my laptop and added an extra SSD and doubled the RAM to 64 GB.

("I want to double the RAM, right?" is a Hackers move.)

@Chance is back up!

Breakers are all new and clean and awesome. (If anyone needs an electrician in Pittsburgh, I have a god one.)

Show thread

The house is getting a new breaker box today. I am going to see how long the two UPSes that are on :Chance: @Chance last, because there's a decent chance she'll survive it. If so, I don't have to restart that file upload I started back on the 19th.

Second and third words, folks. "Well Regulated" Do you think that means 'free from laws'?!
